Additional fees information
Due to national legislation and university regulations it has not been possible to harmonise the fee situation for students on the EUMASLI programme. The situation regarding tuition fees varies depending on the university with which students enrol.
- Heriot-Watt University: £1588 for Scotland and non-UK EU students (per semester); £1875 for England, Northern Ireland or Wales students (per semester); £3375 for Overseas students (per semester).
- Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences: 1000 € for the study programme per semester plus a general university fee of 63 € per semester (for all students).
- Humak University of Applied Sciences: no fees (all students)
In addition to the fees, students are expected to finance travel to and accommodation during block-seminars and other events themselves. Please note that we are not able to provide interpreting services into the various sign languages used by Deaf participants. We appreciate that participation in EUMASLI is a considerable financial commitment, and we aim to minimise costs where possible.
